I want to start out this blog post with the premise that research can be fun! (Trust me for a minute here!)
You just have to make like Sherlock Holmes and repeat over and over to yourself, “Elementary, my dear Watson!”
Just kidding. 🙂
Please don’t tell me that I am the only one out there that absolutely loves research for my novels, stories and short stories. My family laughs at me when I am researching because I have so many eureka moments! 🙂 Enthusiasm is definitely key to enjoying the research when you would rather be writing. But if you like what you are writing about, the research can be nearly as fun as the actual writing!
